Where to park

If you drive to campus on a weekday, your best bet is to either park in the metered or visitor pay lots (bring lots of quarters) or purchase a one-day parking pass. Visitors cannot park in student lots, which are enforced 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The university's visitor parking services can help with maps and permits.
